Hand Sanitizer

Alcohol-based hand sanitizer could kill bacteria and viruses by denaturing the protective outer proteins of microbes and dissolving their membranes. Proper concentration of these alcohols are effective against killing germs and protecting the skin of those who apply it.

Vendors/manufacturers are required to provide bottles of hand sanitizer. The recommended quantity ranges form 100mL to 2L per bottle. These bottles should have a dispensing system such as:

  • Pump
  • Squeeze bottle
  • Nozzle spray
  • Pouring mechanism

The hand sanitizers must contain one of these approved active medicinal ingredients:
